How to calculate my child support payments?

Anonymous Asked:

Currently my ex is paying me 200.34$/ month for child support. I was unemployed at the time, as I was daycare for my ex on his custody days and a stay at home mom, and on social assistance. He was making an annual grosse income of 46,000. We have had 50% shared custody, for the last 1.5 months.

Is that amount correct $200.84/ month ?

I am now working and am wondering at what income level will my child support payments be affected.. or will they be affected at all?

the amount when i was on social assistance seemed low as it was. From my understanding, child support is based on your disposable income, meaning once your personal amount is deducted.

I cannot calculate the basic child support that would be payable as you have not indicated your current gross income.

Basic child support for 2014 is calculated using your gross income minus a basic deduction of $10,200. There can be other deductions such as union dues but there are very few. These deductions calculate your disposable income. Please note that this disposable income is not the same as disposable income for tax purposes.

Basic child support for a spouse earning $46,000 a year and the other $0.00 in a shared custody arrangement for one child is $234.58 per month in 2014. Please remember that this is the basic amount and that other considerations could have been taken into account to arrive at your amount of $200.84. If your income has increased past the $10,200 deduction then child support will decrease proportionally to the increase in your revenues.
